In this thread, post when you ordered, when you receive your Cherokee, and any financial details of your deal that you are comfortable to share.
This should help all of us figure out how long we should be waiting and how much we should be paying.
I ordered on October 15th. As of right now, they have not started building mine yet, so it is in Production Scheduled. My dealer thinks I'll get it in November, but I think I'll get it more around December 10-20. I'm hoping for before Christmas. If it's sooner, that's a bonus, but I don't see it.
I was able to modify an existing dealer order that hadn't been built for a Limited 3.2L V6 in granite that was somewhere between 37,000 and 38,000. I took some options off and used the Friends Plan discount, which saved me about $1,800. All told, I think my order is for like $34,000. The Cherokee has black leather, heated seats and steering wheel, sunroof, 4x4, backup cam, and nav. They also agreed to give me $10,000 for my truck that is worth $8,800, so that was nice, and means that, with the $1,000 down payment, I'll finance about $23,000.
The Friends plan discount is cool because it basically erases the tax. If you know anyone who works for Jeep or Chrysler, try to get that.
